Hi, the bike was in a dealers when I saw it on e- bay in September ( I was in Orlando at the time ), but didn't put an offer in until winter was well upon us, to try to get a deal. This worked out ok as I saved £500 ( approx. $850 ) so worth the wait. It was deliverd on the 3 rd Dec, but due to inclement weather, I haven't been able to get out, until today, Sunday 11th. Went over 80 mph a couple of times - to try out 6th gear - but only for a mile or two, rest of the time hovering around the 50, 60, 70 mark. At 25 mpg I'm only gonna get 100 miles to a tank. I was hoping to tour Northern Spain this summer. ( my other bike is a Yamaha FJR13, clutch less). 25 mpg isn't a deal breaker but at approx. $2 per.litre ($9 per UK gal.) and the FJ returning an easy 47 mpg holding a steady 90 mph, something needs to be done. I am hoping that a K&N filter + V&H slip on's + power commander will improve matters.
I'm still hoping there's a temporary glitch in the electrics which will iron out as the bike gets used. 25 mpg can't be right.
